Video interview with Penny Rimbaud of Crass.

Ian Svenonius of Vice magazine chats with Crass’s founding drummer and writer Penny Rimbaud. The interview  starts with Penny declaring his slight preferences for the Beatles over the Stones, for at least “not shitting all over Bo Diddley’s shoulder.” Later he muses on Johnny Rotten’s logical inconsistencies before addressing Crass’s “brand image” of Crass. Penny also breaks down his feelings for Rave, describes how the Falklands War and its attendant politics forced Crass into its “immediate response” method of songwriting. Not missing a beat, Rimbaud reveals the anarchist plot to destroy Greenwich Mean Time and shares his thoughts on this concentration camp we call reality.
